Title

Driver's License issued on Palmyra

Description

This rare document was donated by the son of Corporal Roland Champagne, who was stationed on Palmyra from 1942 to 1943. He served as a clerk, but also received his drivers permit while on the atoll, so he could make deliveries around the islands.

This is the only known surviving document of its kind, and we're honored to house a digital copy in our archive.
